Good Days…Bad Days With Maureen Pratt


The Best Easter Ever Is Today

Maureen Pratt Author PicOh, no, you might be thinking. Isn’t she a week or so off? Didn’t Easter already happen? Is she calendar-challenged?

Not at all! I know that April 20 was Easter Sunday. But the best Easter is today. And tomorrow. And the next day.

The best Easter happens everyday when we remember that Jesus, God’s only Son, lived on earth, died, and rose again. Easter happens when we recall God’s amazing love for us, His forgiveness, His Salvation, and His promise of Life Eternal. Yes, that’s when Easter happens – in our hearts – and it’s the best!

We might run out of chocolate bunnies (oh, no!), and we might have to wait until next Easter Sunday to belt out, “Hallelujah!”, but we don’t have to leave the essence of Easter behind.

We’ll never run out of God’s love. We’ll always have something to sing about.

And we’ll have the Best Easter Ever every single day we look to our Savior and let Him lead us on.

Blessings, all!

Maureen

TLC Tuesday: What if you missed Tuesday?
If you have a chronic illness or live with serious pain, you know that sometimes, you "miss" a day or two in the week. It's too hard to get out of bed. You are going through medical tests, and the outside world seems to disappear into the technicality of prep and procedure. You're brain-fogged, and

TLC Tuesday: Slow down!
It's TLC Tuesday, again. But it's also probably the heart of "Back to..." season. Back to school, back to work, back to lots and lots of activities. Yes, activities, and, probably, a lot more stress, a lot more "Hurry up!" But we know that our illnesses and pain often react negatively to "Hurry u

Chronic Illness: If You Were Not You
One of the techniques I try to use whenever I'm in a quandry over something regarding my health is to ask, "What if I were not me? What if I were my mother? My sister? My friend? What would I say? Do? Pray over?" This helps me take the sometimes-frustrated or "at sea" me out of the conversation a

Prayer for Grace-full Aging
Whether your day has passed or is coming up, we all will age one more year this year and onward. We cannot turn back the clock, but we can turn on grace as we move ahead. Her
